A measure that would allow the children of illegal immigrants in-state tuition has been rejected by a Senate Committee. Lynn Hatter reports the vote came after hours of emotional testimony and ended in a tie.

A bill that several lawmakers say would end tuition discrimination in Florida could help one young man fulfill his goal.

18-year-old Renato Lherisson, the son of undocumented immigrants, is a native of Miami.
